Eton College has an extraordinarily rich tradition of stained glass, both religious and secular. To replace glass in Eton College Chapel bombed out during the Second World War, John Piper (1903-1992) and Patrick Reyntiens (b. 1925) created eight windows. Of 80 full size cartoons, 60 survive in private hands. This was the first opportunity in 50 years to see them reunited. Also on display were two further Piper designs, one for the Baptistery window in Coventry Cathedral, and one for an Annunciation window for a church in Abingdon.
Alongside the works displayed in the Verey Gallery, Eton College was fortunate to be able to display throughout many buildings work by architectural and stained glass artist Brian Clarke.
